Im known to throw out the word "word" often due to me running with the wrong crowd as a teenager, and when I said it today to one of my pals at work he showed me this. I thought it was pretty funny. Guess it's been around, but I had never seen it. Maybe you havent either.

Adding my workspace to the mix.

My workspace at Amaze

I love seeing other artists workspaces. Ive seen workspace thread's on tons of threads all around the net, and Ive never took the time to take the photo's to share. Well I was inspired this time by Ward from "The Ward O Matic", and I also noticed one of the guys that I work with posted his new space on his blog too. Danny is one of the new animators on Pirates.

We just moved over the weekend into cubeland. So all my pictures and artwork are not displayed. But I was able to add a bit here and there.

If you click on the picture it will take you to my flickr site which has more photos and notes added 'splaining some areas. Man I really dig flickr, you can really add nice touches to pics. Im thinking of moving on up to the pro account. The free account only gives you 20meg upload room. Not all that much room, if you plan on sharing tons of pics.

Fencing project over Memorial Day weekend

Here is a glimpse of what I did over Memorial Day weekend. All day Saturday was taken up by doing this fence, mainly by myself til my neighbor came out and helped later in the afternoon. I did a majority of all the hard work like digging the post holes and mixing the cement and placing the posts in. I also put up all the 2x4's and the 1st 3 sections you see I put all the cedar boards up. Lot of work. The last 3 sections had to be taken down 3 times, cause things got lopsided, and another time we decided to try and step it down, then I contacted my contractor friend who came over and took a look and said why not just cut it with the skilsaw, so that's what we did. I also cut all the posts to match. It was a lot of hard work but so worth it. The price I was quoted by some fencing co. would've set me back $1200, but I was able to put this up for about $500. Big difference. Damn labor jobs...They kill ya, but they get the job done a lot faster than some scrub who's not sure what they are doing :) Here is another photo
